As any aspiring Twitch streamer knows, building up a loyal following of viewers is probably the most difficult part, so one streamer has made sure he is promoting his stream 24/7 – by tattooing it on his face.

Streamer ‘FakeNerdBoy’, who has just short of 20,000 followers on Twitch, made a life-changing decision recently, having the direct URL of his channel permanently inked just below his left eye.

He streams a variety of games, and with that many followers no doubt has a solid fanbase, but he apparently wants to take it to the next level.

Twitch as a platform is undoubtedly the most popular location for video game streamers, with a millions of viewers daily and robust monetization features.

With that, some gamers and streamers are making an impressive living streaming daily, with the most popular estimated to be making seven figure salaries.

While FakeNerdBoy might not be at that level of Twitch stardom yet, his decision to literally have his channel name inked on him forever, directly on his face, is a sign of dedication like no other.

He posted an image of his tattoo as well as one of it actually being applied, with a message to his Twitter followers explaining he wants to take his streaming career to the next level.

For many streamers, taking it to the next level would typically entail streaming more hours, improving the quality of equipment or giving their overlay and branding a revamp.

But for FakeNerdBoy of course, the idea took on a whole new meaning – and it must be said, seeing someone out in public with their Twitch URL tattooed on their face may just prompt you to check them out.

FakeNerdBoy will now effectively be self-promoting every time he appears in a photo or video posted on social media – or even by just stepping outside.

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
